The Color of Comics

We like comics fanboys, we really do.  We like a lot of their blogs, their podcasts. their websites, and most of all their enthusiasm.

But Great Caesar’s Ghost, can they waste time!

Did you know BOTH comics companies use darker scenes to indicate an OMINOUS VIBE?

Did you know black was the most common bad guy color used for villains?

Of course you did, we all did, but that didn’t stop the chaps over at colourlovers.com from making up an exhaustive list of visual aids and LISTING SOURCES.

Even in this cynical age, we would have accepted the bit about villains wearing black without a bibliography. Really.
